New Jersey court rejects civil service changes for public workers
Source: Governing the States and Localities
“In a defeat for Gov. Christie’s administration, [a New Jersey] appeals court ruled on Thursday that he could not scrap exam requirements for hiring or promoting career public workers in state government.”
The Bergen Record, a newspaper, reported that “The court also ruled that the Legislature has a ‘legislative veto’ — the power to strike down any regulations adopted by the executive branch if they defy ‘legislative intent.’"
